Michael Don Stotts

March 26, 1955 — December 26, 2021

Michael Don Stotts passed away Sunday, December 26th, 2021 at the age of 66. His life was cut short due to several medical battles. Despite all the pain and suffering he fought hard all the way to the end.
Michael is survived by his wife, Brenda Stotts; his children, Shawn and Andrew; daughter-in-laws, Morgan and Ixchel; his grandchildren, David, Grace, Ava, Abigail, and Liam; and his faithful dog Bella. He is proceeded in death by parents Donald Cassius Stotts and Mildred Eileen Stotts.
Michael was born on March 26th, 1955 in Elk City where he was raised until his family moved to the farm just outside Lucien at around 5 years old. He attended Hayward Public School in his younger years and later transitioned to Covington Douglas Public School where he graduated in 1974.
Michael was married to his best friend Brenda for 45 years and they lived most of their life on the farm where he was raised. They moved out to the farm to take care of his mother after his father passed away.
Michael was known by all as an extremely hard worker and a great problem solver. His careers included working in the oil field, various forms of construction, and a machinist for 18 years at Charles Machine works. If a job needed completed, he was the person you could depend on to get it done.
Michael enjoyed several hobbies including bull riding, camping, fishing, woodworking, gardening, and raising cattle. He was known as a master craftsman and could build almost anything out of metal or wood. One of his last major creations was building a custom sawmill from scratch to harvest his own wood from the farm for his various projects.
Visitation will be Thursday, December 30, 2021 from 9AM to 8PM at Dighton-Marler Funeral Home of Perry. A Celebration of Michael’s life will be on Friday, December 31, 2021 at 2PM at the First United Methodist Church in Covington with Rev. Tom Donaldson officiating.
